Don't you hate it when all of the sudden, your kid seems a lot older? This just happened with Lyla. I feel like last week she was my baby and this week she is a little girl. She has always been independent but lately she is so much more. She tells us "No. I do it" whenever we try to help her with anything. She is a little chatterbox and talks to me all day long. She is starting to say things that really cracks us up.
